Announcing Mozilla Enterprise User Working Group

stormy

Recently there’s been a lot of discussion about enterprises and rapid releases. Online life is evolving faster than ever and it’s imperative that Mozilla deliver improvements to the Web and to Firefox more quickly to reflect this. This has created challenges for IT departments that have to deliver lots of mission-critical applications through Firefox. Mozilla is fundamentally about people and we care about our users wherever they are. To this end, we are re-establishing a Mozilla Enterprise User Working Group as a place for enterprise developers, IT staff and Firefox developers to discuss the challenges, ideas and best practices for deploying Firefox in the enterprise. It will be a place to ask questions and get information about Mozilla plans.

The group will have conversations on the discussion list and during in person meetings as well as during monthly phone meetings. The monthly meetings will focus on a topic. In the past we’ve discussed topics like add-on management and security. The next meeting we hold will discuss the release cycle and how enterprises can use Firefox in a way that fits into their own testing and release cycles.

Discussions will preserve the privacy of the participants to facilitate open discussion of best practices and issues companies are facing. Summaries of the discussions will be made public so that everyone can benefit from them.

We look forward to hearing from enterprise users and IT managers from organizations of all sizes. If you are interested in participating, please email us.

Two weeks later, the result is the enterprise working group. We don’t know how effective that will be, but it is a first sign that Mozilla has thought about the topic and is looking for a solution. From the blog post: [...]
